A Brief History
The Colony Club
The Georgian-style Colony Club was constructed in 1927 and opened in 1929 as one of four women’s clubs in the immediate vicinity, along with the Century Club (now part of the Gem Theatre complex), the Women’s City Club, and the YWCA.
Situated at the corner of Montcalm and Park Ave., it has been home to a number of tenants since the original club closed in 1933, including as headquarters of the UAW, and home of the Detroit Police Academy. It was purchased by Charles Forbes in 1984.View Gallery
